Sorghum Dijon Roasted Salmon

We love salmon, and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it.  I always have sorghum on hand, and grainy mustard too, so I combined them for the glaze this time.  My husband commented that it seems counter-intuitive that something sweet like sorghum would combine well with mustard, but we could certainly have this recipe again.  
We usually buy locally-made sorghum from Maasdam’s, from Lynnville, Iowa or from Daniel Hoover from Rich Hill, Missouri.  Sorghum is great with corn bread, in cookies, and anywhere else you might use mild molasses.

  1. I don't have sorghum, but have cane molasses..... do have mustard
    and have some salmon. Sounds good to me.

  2. so you can use molasses. Do not have sorghum either. What is it and where do you get it. I am from west coast. Heard of it, but do not really know what it is.

    1. Sorghum grows in Iowa and many other states south of looks somewhat like corn in the field. They process it like sugar cane and make syrup from it...but most of the crop is raised for animal feed and silage. The syrup is like mild molasses...but better...we think around here anyway.
      Here's a nice explanation: What is sorghum?

    2. Can't wait to try this for dinner today.
